Booklist on the first book in this series, Stoker's Wilde: "Pass this volume on to readers who are hungry for more historical stories with a supernatural frame."
Science and the supernatural collide in this terrifying tale of witches, reanimated corpses and spirits invading our world from beyond the grave. 
Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde have returned to their lives in London after their adventures in the American West. Bram is managing a theatre and Oscar is rising to fame and planning his upcoming wedding when they are once again called upon to battle supernatural evil. 
Grief-crazed scientist Victor Mueller needs Bram’s unusual blood for his mad quest to bring his dead wife back to life, and he’ll resort to kidnapping to get it. Meanwhile, a young medium named Lorna Bow runs fake séances in London under the thumb of an abusive uncle. When her mother Endora returns, Lorna learns the truth: they come from a long line of witches, and soon Endora has awakened Lorna’s dormant powers. 
When the scientist and the witches combine forces, all Hell breaks loose. Long-dead souls find themselves back in the land of the living, and some of them have scores to settle with our heroes. But as Mueller’s ambition and her mother’s desire for vengeance against the men who imprisoned her become clear, Lorna soon finds herself questioning the morality of their work.
Bram and Oscar must team up with American secret agent Cora Chase to protect all they hold dear. Only a mission into the Land of the Dead can stop Mueller and Endora from bringing back more souls. 
Bram’s wife Florence must call on the monster-fighting skills she honed in America, and even Oscar’s bride Constance has to face new challenges as she learns how the supernatural has shaped her own history. 
In an adventure that spans continents – and even other worlds – they confront old enemies and unknown dangers. Teaming up with old friends Teddy Roosevelt and Richard Burton and new allies like Arthur Conan Doyle and Nicola Tesla, they too must harness both science and magic to protect our world from intruders from the Land of the Dead.

Recenzii

Praise for STOKER'S WILDE and STOKER'S WILDE WEST:"Suggest to fans of paranormal alternative history featuring well-drawn characters and strong world building, such as Molly Tanzer’s Creatures series, Robert McCammon’s I Travel by Night series, or The Hunger by Alma Katsu." — Booklist"Hopstaken and Prusi have done their homework and produced a pleasing period penny dreadful." — Publishers Weekly's review of Stoker's Wilde"Historical details and supernatural monsters abound, but it is the odd couple of Wilde and Stoker, with their diametrically opposed personalities and interesting quirks, that drives this story. Pass this volume on to readers who are hungry for more historical stories with a supernatural frame." — Booklist's review of Stoker's Wilde“A fun throwback to classic horror, playing off of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, this tale stars fictionalized versions of both Stoker and Wilde, brought together through circumstance to hunt the undead throughout England [...] This husband-and-wife writing team offer a solid choice for fans of vampire lore and atmospheric, historical horror.” — Library Journal's review of Stoker's Wilde“A piece of work that is more original and creative than any novel I have read in years.” — High Fever Books' review of Stoker's Wilde"Stoker's Wilde is immensely entertaining and engrossing...this novel was an utter delight." — The Haunted Reading Room's review of Stoker's Wilde"This is a must-read for Horror lovers.” —Terror Tree's review of Stoker's Wilde"Stoker’s Wilde West is, quite simply, an addictive, clever and extremely fun horror adventure. — Grimdark Magazine"Fast, furious, funny, action-packed, gory, fast-talking with a hint of fantasy and science fiction thrown into the mix. What’s not to like in another winner from Flame Tree Press, an imprint to look out for, and If the little teaser at the end is anything to go by we might have more adventures to come? Let’s hope so." — Concatenation
